Thread: HBO now $18?

No way i'd pay 18$ a month for HBO. However, 18$ won't get in the way of my GF watching True Blood...... the irony.

When you consider that there's no way Dish would offer HBO at half price unless they're making a profit at that level, full price of $18 is ridiculous.
HBO is welcome to see what the market will bear. If enough people are willing to pay that much it makes sense businesswise. I won't be one of them.
I love Game of Thrones, but won't overpay for that or any other program.

Which brings me back to a point I brought up a year and a half ago, and wound up starting a wildfire. But HBO Latino should be either a la carte or in the Spanish packages. Really, I who don't speak Spanish and have no desire to, shouldn't be required to pay the somewhere between 40 extra cents to the dollar they charge for it. Charge me $17 for the other six, or give me an option for a Cinemax channel as compensation. 5 Star Max would be perfect (no late night programming).
I'll be called a racist once again, but I must say HBO Latino is one reason I don't pay for HBO. I shouldn't have to pay more for a service in a language I don't speak. Put it in a package for those who speak that language.

I do not like nor support paying for premium channels and still seeing snipes, distracting channel logo bugs, and end credit interruptions. The line has to be drawn somewhere, and with me...it's no on screen displays during the programming and a guarantee you can listen to the end credit music to a movie...NO EXCEPTIONS...PERIOD. Because if you allow it, you'll have a channel bug cover a subtitle translation when an actor is speaking a foreign language...which I have witnessed on Starz...and it'll just get worse, with it happening more and more.
Now if it's $18+ and HBO decided to degrade the premium experience with the on screen crap everyone else is doing...then yeah...it would definitely be too much.
